Does anyone know how effective today's TTC riders protest was?

Did you refuse to use the TTC to protest the fare hike?

Something really does need to be done.
$2.75 fare for slow service is robbery.

Winchester, a designer who says she set up the protest because of her frustration with passengers' views being ignored, knows that Toronto's transit system receives some of the lowest government funding per ride in North America. But she also believes part of the problem is mismanagement on behalf of the TTC. "Their first reaction to a budget shortfall is usually to put it on the backs of the ridership," Winchester told Torontoist.

Bad management + greedy unions = Screwed passengers
